Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Finals

April 29, 2022, 10:30 PM11:30 PM EDT

Canadian Individual Poetry Slam is a nationally recognized poetry slam. This year, the competition will take place online and in-person , as part of the Verses Festival of Words. 16 poets representing spoken word series and regions across Canada will compete in a head-to-head double knock out tournament, presenting poems that are 1,2,3 or 4 minutes in length. Winners of each head-to-head will be determined by 5 random judges from the in-person and/or online audiences. This judging system aligns with our vision of the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion being chosen by fellow community members – without hierarchy, without prioritizing expertise, cultivating a way of accessing poetry for all.

This event will be broadcast on POETV
